liberals. that will not work. what we know now, harry reid and nancy pelosi have said it does not matter what you call it, it is a public auction. the american people have been extremely effective with congress, now is not the time to give up. now is not the time to take the pressure off. they will move forward with some level of a public auction. it might not be the full level that they want but it will be incrementally in that direction. if they have to wait a couple of years to get the public auction, they will do it. the american people need to rise up and say no. sean: i think that they are playing word games. this is a strategy. they will call it something else. if the government ultimately decides who is covered, if the government decides what people can charge, if the government decides what care you get, it is still destroys the public free market system, the private insurance system. >> yes, because it is government control and mandates. the government mandates that you do something or they will do it to themselves. clearly they're not going in the direction people want

of the g.o.p., and also we heard from the senate majority leader, harry reid's spokesman saying "we will not make a decision to pursue reconciliation. this is the process of the vote, until we have exhausted efforts to produce a bipartisan bill. however, patience is not unlimited. we are determined to get something done this year by any legislative means necessary." so what about this? let's bring in our panel, steve hayes with the week hadly standard, and a.b. stoddard, associate writer of the hill and byron williams. >> eric can cantor is right. in the house, they have been going it alone since the beginning. remember the fight in the energy committee between the blue dog democrats? the reason they were having that fight is because they made the decision at the beginning that they weren't going to get any republican votes at all. they drafted the bill by themselves and have been pushing it by themselves. as far as the house is concerned, the democrats have always been going it alone. as far as the senate is concerned, they have been having negotiations with three, count 'em three
